Yea, I think Waters is the real asshole of the band. Having said that, he was an integral part that made the band what it was.

It seems many did not like PF after The Wall, most notably The Final Cut. It really is a Roger Waters album, but I like it quite a bit.

Like Led Zepplin, it's hard to say that there was an album by Floyd that WASN"T good.

"I have a bike, you can ride it if you like. It's got a basket, a bell, and pretty things to make it look good. I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it. I know a mouse..." One of my fav Syd Barret songs from Floyd, but the album BARRETT is still my fav "solo" album by him---I paid $22 for it at Waxie Maxies back in '87 or '88, which was pretty expensive for ONE CD back then.

I'll probably take flak for this, but I never liked Dark Side of the Moon. After Ummagumma and Echoes it juat seemed like bubble gum to me. This does get me into a lot of drinking arguments, but isn't that what beer is for ?

Hey snori & tree-ap (& Dire to piss him off! Ha): I ONLY listen to Piper and Saucer...the first two.

Okay with some of the latter stuff, but really, it is ALL Syd for me and Syd influenced (ie, # 2).

Not that that means dick, but there it is...

I always thought that poor Syd was the one that deserved all the credit, but then, he did have his demons...

Never really cared for the other two. Though I recognize each had their musical abilities.
